I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that I recently dropped 18 lbs (214-196) and hit a 30 lbs deadlift PR (505-535). The change occurred over the course of about 6 months but the real change happened in just the last 3 (especially the strength as I had a leg injury that kept me from lifting in July and August). Various little things went into accomplishing this but your Strong15 program was one of the ingredients. I followed it for the deadlift and began each deadlift day with power cleans (new to me) and usually ended with semi-power shrugs. I also switched to front squatting for the last 8 weeks. As I mentioned, there were various other things that went into this but I won’t bore with the details. I have become a believer in hitting heavy weight and then backing off. Thank you for putting the program out there. I look forward to the new version.
This is what I like to read about. The thing I like about the guys that are following my stuff, is that they are doing a great job of thinking on their own about the things they need to do outside of the program. You have to be a smart lifting scientist. I can never emphasize that enough.
